2 Habits to Start Today

A lot of you guys have been asking me about 2 of my recent nutrition habits. So, here’s the scoop.

First:
I drink a green smoothie Every. Single. Day. Every day. And I feel fantastic. It happens in one of two ways.

Best Option: 6-10 Oz Spinach, 2-3 Oz Kale, 8 Strawberries, 2 Tbsp Orange Juice Concentrate, 1 Scoop vanilla Whey Protein powder, and a banana, all blended. I freeze everything but the banana, and the protein. And I drink it throughout the day. (Usually at night, I share a little. Just ask Robin Berry) Also, ever so slowly, I’m planning on removing the sweets from it.

Alternative Option: Powder green supplement. Currently, I’m using Athletic Greens, but in years past have just gone with Amazing Grass.

I started the powders about 5 years ago when Moira C Fauth gave me a baggy filled with green powder (sketch…). My allergies are almost completely gone, and I’ve been legitimately sick only 2 times. I just added the smoothies within the last 8 months, and it’s upgraded my morning energy levels, and ability to focus.

Second:
I still struggle with eating right. I can totally relate to the struggle that many of you deal with on a daily basis. Sometimes, it feels like my self control button is broken. So I have been experimenting with purchasing pre-made meals. Still getting the timing down so that I don’t ever run out, but it’s working, and relatively affordable.

I’m using a service called www.Bitemeals.com.

The meals are yummy, have a constant variety (just like CrossFitters like), and fit nicely into a solid nutrition program. I’ll have some for sale here at the gym for $10 bucks if you want to give one a try.

Do this. Experiment with stuff. Report back.
